This review is from: Dead Space 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Forget the criticism that two player detracts from the experience because it really isn't as prominent a feature as the hype suggested. Instead of dark corridors with copy and paste vents for necromorphs to jump out from you have both indoor and outdoor sections at all times of day. To compensate for outdoor day sections blizzards are used which is quite effective. Necromorphs run out of the whiteness and this works quite well.
While the copy and paste vents are not gone I did feel like this instalment did have a modicum of respect for fans and I did find that I did stumble across a couple of jump scares. For instance if you wish to backtrack through a level there is no telling at what point a necromorph starts to follow you. A few times I turned around after backrtacking quite a way to be confronted with a necromorph calmly walking behind me. Also being a fan from dead space 1 I found myself aiming carefully at a spawn vent and edging closer only to have a necromorph come from a completely unexpected direction.
Unfortunately these departures from the norm are rare!
Weapon crafting pretty much breaks the game too!. Once you have created you uber weapon you are unlikely to change through the rest of the game. Stupid idea in my opinion. Though this is easily solved by sticking to the plasma cutter through out.
My main problem is that there is no standout creepy bit. No new addition that I remember. Boring additions in terms of enemies a few new necromorphs (not the ones you have seen in the trailer!!!) but ultimately a little dull.
The story is boring, the ending section does turn things up to 11 in a way but I wasn't interested anymore.
1 felt like survival horror (though everyone just went to the store and stocked up on health packs) 2 was the aliens to dead space's alien with eye surgery, scary new raptor necros and creepy bits such as the nursery and the unitologists church. 3 has well nothing. It is just bland. WELL DONE EA.
I miss the space stations and ships, I miss the creepy unitologists, I miss dead space!
